Welcome to "BOLETAS" Birdwatching Centre

"BOLETAS" ( Egyptian Vulture in local language) was formed in 1994. A stroke of luck enables us to live our long-awaited dream; install ourselves in a small rural village in the midst of one of the best birdwatching areas in the Iberian Peninsula, dedicating ourselves exclusively to our interest in birds while enjoying the special scenery of the Central Pyrenees.

In the peaceful village of Loporzano we restored an old house, once a storehouse for wines and oils in the 16th Century, converting it into a Birdwatching Centre & Guest House offering, attentive service, accommodation, excellent food & wine , information and selection of very well organised tours through Spain, Morocco & other countries .

Our doors are open for those naturalist and birdwatchers , guided or independent , who want to visit Spain and need any information about birds, sites or accommodation. We will help you, without any cost, arranging bookings, suggesting best sites or itineraries and giving all necessary information for a successful holiday. If you are travelling or birding around our area and you want to visit BOLETAS Birdwatching Centre ,we would be delighted to invite you for a cup of tea or a glass of wine while we share our love for birds.
